Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR LIFE -

I N S P I R I N G S T O R I E S . E V E R Y D AY A D V I C E . G R E AT R E A D S . Words are pow­er­ful, yet ‘most of our com­mu­ni­ca­tion is non­ver­bal,’ says Dr David Mat­sumoto, whose com­pany, Hu­mintell, trains peo­ple to read emotions. In fact, ges­tures and fa­cial ex­pres­sions can be more mean­ing­ful than what you’re say­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to Mat­sumoto, the key to be­ing sure you’re ex­press­ing your­self the way you want – es­pe­cially when you’re stressed or scared (ask­ing for an in­crease? We hope so!) – is to deeply be­lieve in what you’re telling some­one. Take a deep breath and re­mem­ber: you are worth it.
